School Days

Time for 5 combined Challenges

Challenges from:
Squigglefly - Use Stars
Scrap Our Stash - Use school themed embellies/paper and create school themed layout.
Childs Play - Classic Craft Challenge - Sequins
Love to Scrap - create a project featuring something that flies (owl image from Squigglefly)
Once Upon a Sketch - Sketch Challenge (see sketch below)

This is what I created
 I had a lot of fun using embossing powders on this layout, which is something I should do more often.  I used an owl image from Squiqqlefly to signify learning and the stars represent how fantastic my grandson is and and how much he has learnt in the last year. (he is such a star!)

The used the sequins as they remind me of how 'sparkly' my grandson is each and every time I see him.

I also used: Ledger paper, paper clip, alphas, numbers.

I used a sketch from Once upon a Sketch as the basis of the layout but I decided to link the photos together and add the owl as an additional element (representing wisdom) on the top right of the page.

The stamps I used: Banana Frog Stamps - Super Stars and Sassafras Lass Stamps - Mini Boy Talk - All Boy.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.
